We’ve seen pediatric urgent care take root. Orthopedic-oriented urgent care centers continue to flourish. Now the Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC) expects a combination of the two will offer patients the best of both worlds, and is set to start construction in Los Angeles on a new pediatric orthopedic urgent care center that will more than double the size of the current ortho trauma wing. In addition to projecting the facility will help OIC keep more patients in-house, the groundbreaking itself is expected to be a family-friendly community event. Former Los Angeles Dodgers will be in attendance, and area families have been invited to take part in a “fun and fitness” carnival with games, fitness activities, and health information booths.
